Subject: My First Cheese Show
So even though i didnt know much about the band and only heard like 3 or 4 of there songs I took a chance. We got the Township about a hour before the show and there were people everywhere outside. Go in and sit down farely close to the stage and were ready for the show. Cheese came out and the crowd went nuts and I was pretty excited because I had no idea what I was in for.
They start the show off with a great version of !BAM! and I was like holy shit where did this band come from. Next was Shine and it was suck a great version. Right before Kyle goes into that phat jam, we smoked some buds and i was on cloud 9 after that. Then they played some laid back songs and those were great also. Lost was real fun to, I really dig that tune. Well here's where it gets great Under African Skies>Jam>Outside Inside was just amazing, both were played so well. Kang and Nershi battle it out in Under African Skies and it goes so fast. The first set just blew me away, I loved everything they played and trust me they played so fuckin good.
The second set was so huge and Travis came out doing cart wheels before they started and you could just tell it was gonna a huge set. The Lonesome Fiddle Blues they opened with was by far the best version I have ever heard. It has a reggae jam in the middle and then kyle just rips it up on the keys in the end. He just keeps building and building and then just explodes at the end. I was going so crazy during this point of the song. Then next came Got What He Wanted>Jam>Search, which was also some the best cheese I have ever heard. Got What He Wanted>jam was 23 minutes exactle and every minute is superb, the jam is awesome and I had no idea what was going on during it. They segue perfectly into Search and it was such a good version, it seemed to me that it was more upbeat then other versions I have heard. Next was Hotel Window and it was very chill and I liked that after all that jammin. I couldn't believe they went into Shakin the Tree. My favorite version by far and Kang jammed out so well at the end, I was dancin so hard, it was great. Here was the highlight for JELLYFISH, and with Kang on the bass in the begining. So it's just Kang on the bass, Travis, and Kyle and they do a very nice jam for about 5 minutes into. Then out of no where Kang and Travis just leave the stage, with Kyle Saying where the hell is the band, I got blisters on my fingers, I cant play this shit all night. Then he leaves the stage and we were like what the hell is that it. Out of no where a light comes on the center of the stage, there's Nershi by himself playing some funky jellyfish licks and then travis joins him with a phat beat and then rest of them come back out. It jams out so awesome after all the lyrics and i was going fucking nuts. They perfectly segue into Dirk and it was one of the best versions I have ever heard to. So funky and chill it was a great way to end the set. The encore was fantastic also The Old Home Place, I liked this song a lot, it was good way to end the show after all that jammin during the second set.
This show brings back so many good memories I have of that night and I will never forget this show for the rest of my life. I was blown way after and couldnt stop talking about for months after it. I've seen cheese 8 times now and still this was the best show I have ever seen them play. Please if you have the time download this show you wont be dissappointed at all trust me. I was there and it was so amazing.
I also just wanted to say thanks to the cheese for such an amazing night. There best at what they do and I will always be a fan of there's.
